A Taste of Holiday Spirit — Bully Sticks

Like many of you read on Love & a Six-Foot leash yesterday, the very famous Handsome Dan held a bully stick drive to benefit the dogs at their local shelters. When Handsome Dan’s Rescue received many, many more bully sticks than they could have ever imagined, they generously shared the wealth. Three days later, a shipment of bully sticks showed up at the Montgomery County Humane Society.

Now has anyone out there hand delivered such a scrumptious treat to a bunch of shelter dogs awaiting forever homes? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it. It is so rewarding.

The activity level of the shelter immediately settles down as each dog gently grabs their bully stick and trots to their beds to savor the delicious snack. Soon you have a silent kennel with nothing but little sounds of chewing and happy dogs.

So thank you very much to Handsome Dan’s Rescue for Pit Bull Type Dogs for the bully sticks. Our shelter dogs sure loved them, and nothing makes us happier than seeing our animals so happy.

And thank you to everyone else who is thinking of homeless animals during this holiday season. Today is MCHS’s “Holiday for the Shelter Animals” celebration. Our volunteers will be spending extra time with the animals, and handing out the multitude of toys, blankets, and treats we received through holiday donation drives. Baxter and I will also be delivering the 200 lbs of kibble! Thanks to the generosity of the public we will be able to bring a little bit of holiday cheer to the animals, like we already started with the bully sticks. Santa CK Bax sure is looking forward to it!

Fostermom says I have all of YOU to thank for this success, so thank you thank you thank you!

I’m feeling pretty under the weather so I’m not up for the post I wanted to give you tonight (hint hint) but I have some pretty adorable pictures I’d like to share from Friday’s event, Howl-o-ween. You really can’t go wrong with eye ball cupcakes, spiked cider, and dogs in costume!

It was held at Sniffers Doggie Depot, this great daycare/boarding facility that is an incredible supporter of MCHS. The two girls that run it are fabulous, and look how well they decorated the room! It looked awesome.

Bobbing for Hotdogs!

I seriously love my coworkers. We make quite the team.

Just another reason why October is my favorite month of the year.

Easy Going.

I finally had a few free hours to hang out with Miss Georgia last Friday night. She helped me relax and gear up for the Baltimore Running Festival the next morning where I was running the half marathon. Races like that are great because you work so hard to train and complete it, and you usually have a reason behind running it. I’ve always ran for my aunt who has cancer, but I recently found out there were people from Jasmine’s House (Zabora & Georgia’s rescue) who were running for pittys! How cool is that? I hope some day cancer will be gone forever and I can put my strides towards pit bull rescues.

Anyway, my mind was going one hundred different directions after a week of weeding through Love Ball logistics. I needed to relax, refocus, and prep for the 13 miles I was facing the next day. That wasn’t going to happen, but then super Georgia came to the rescue.

She gently walked over to me, stared at me with her big brown eyes, and said, “Hey, relax. What’s the rush? I don’t see any reason to do much more than just lay around and chill out.” She happens to be really convincing, so I joined her. On the couch, on the floor – she will get you to hang out with her anywhere.

Georgia just being Georgia.

Georgia is so laid back and relaxed. She isn’t necessarily one of those dogs that falls asleep everywhere, but she likes to lay and to be – especially if it is close to you (or her fosterbrother, Chick). She couldn’t get out of Aleks’ lap. It was so adorable. Want a dog that makes you stop, take a breath, and enjoy a quiet moment to yourself? Curious Georgia is your girl.

I am pretty sure she lives by one of my favorite sayings: Keep Calm and Carry On.

And yes, she tucked herself in.
